Ruby on Rails ha been characterized as a possible historic tipping point in development environments. This is a productive new way to develop web applications. These tutorial articles step through the development of a web application using Rails. Ruby is a pure object-oriented programming language with a super clean syntax that makes programming elegant and fun. Rails is an open source Ruby framework for developing database- backed web applications. Its been stated that you can develop a web application at least ten times faster with Rails than you could with a typical Java framework. Rolling with Ruby on Rails What is Ruby? What is Rails?

  • 12. June 2006 Newsletter for Computer IT Education, Training & Tutorial Resources Really Getting Started in Rails This Ruby on Rails tutorial goes a little deeper and explains some of the details left out of the above two tutorials, such as some of the syntax and why things are done they way they are. Developing PHP the Ajax Way, Part 1: Getting Started Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax), has become the most popular new Web development technology. This is the first of a new two-part "Developing PHP the Ajax way" series (2nd part is not posted yet). In this Ajax tutorial and coding demonstation, you'll develop an online Web photo album application using PHP and the Simple Ajax Toolkit (Sajax). It starts be coding a simple photo album app using the usual method of PHP programming, to which Sajax is then applied and used to create it into an active Web application. Here are some more resources from IBM with which you can learn more about how to use PHP, Ajax, and related web development technologies: q PHP can be installed with built-in GD support. GD can be used, for example, to generate photo thumbnails. For more information, read the developerWorks article "Create graphics the smart way with PHP." q Read the five-part "Mastering Ajax" series on developerWorks for a comprehensive overview of Ajax. q Start with the "Considering Ajax" series to learn what developers need to know before using Ajax techniques when creating a Web site. q If you aren't familiar with Ajax or Sajax, read "Using Ajax with PHP and Sajax." q Be sure to check out "Reading and writing the XML DOM with PHP."
  • 13. June 2006 Newsletter for Computer IT Education, Training & Tutorial Resources Best 27 Eclipse Tutorials by IBM Eclipse is an open source platform-independent software framework that is focused on providing an extensible development platform and application frameworks for building software. It delivers 'rich-client applications', as opposed to 'thin client' browser-based applications. So far this framework has typically been used to develop IDEs (Integrated Development Environments), such as the Java IDE called Java Development Toolkit (JDT) and compiler that comes as part of Eclipse After researching all of the Eclipse tutorials on IBM's website, I have compiled what I believe are the best 27 Eclipse Tutorials on their site. Here they are with linked titles and descriptions. Digging Deep into Python Internals Python, the open source scripting language, has grown tremendously popular in the last five years. Python boasts a sophisticated object model that wise developers can exploit in ways that Java, C++, and C# developers can only dream of. These two tutorial articles describe and teach the internals of coding in Python using some of its advances and cutting-edge features. Dig Deep into Python Internals - Part 1 This tutorial article is the first in a two-part series that digs deep to explore the fascinating new-style Python object model, which was introduced in Python 2.2 and improved in 2.3 and 2.4. The object model and type system are very dynamic and allow quite a few interesting tricks. This tutorial describes the object, model, and type system; explores various entities; explains the life cycle of an object; and introduces some of the ways to modify and customize almost everything you thought immutable at runtime. Dig Deep into Python Internals - Part 2 In this tutorial article the author, Gigi Sayfan, contrasts meta-classes with
  • 14. June 2006 Newsletter for Computer IT Education, Training & Tutorial Resources decorators, explores the Python execution model and explains how to examine stack frames at runtime. Finally, he demonstrates how to augment the Python language itself using these techniques. A private access-checking feature that can be enforced at runtime is introduced to accomplish this.
